Three people died when a small plane crashed in the US state of Indiana, police said on Sunday.

The single-engine Cessna went down and caught fire behind a home in a heavily-wooded area of the Midwestern state at about 9:10 pm (0210 GMT) local time on Saturday, the Indiana State Police said in a statement.

The crash “claimed the lives of all three people on board” as well as a dog, it said.

“A second dog survived the crash and showed up at a nearby residence. The dog was taken to a local veterinarian to be treated for injuries,” the police said.

They did not release the victims’ identities.

The plane was flying from Kansas City, Missouri, to Frederick, Maryland.
